Chicago, IL (PRWEB) December 10, 2013
Sarantos first music song release is now only three weeks away. "Not Where I Wanna Be" is one of the most eagerly awaited song debuts in the Chicago area in the last decade.
Solo music artist Sarantos has reached over 17,000 fans on Facebook and 37,000 Twitter followers without even releasing his first song yet! All this hype has made Sarantos even more excited for his music debut. The first song is titled “Not Where I Wanna Be” and will be released worldwide on January 2nd, 2014.
Sarantos was born and raised in the Chicago area and it seems that the local communities are ready to support him. The buzz has been building for the past few months and the moment of truth has almost finally arrived. Sarantos' music has received rave reviews so far from industry insiders, and he relishes this chance to pursue his lifelong dream.
Sarantos has a strong motivation with his musical passion to raise money for charity. 33 percent of any music-related sales profits are going straight to charity. For Not Where I Wanna Be, Sarantos has chosen the American Cancer Society. The decision was really simple. Sarantos father passed away a few years ago after a long battle with lung cancer.
"This song is about turning 30 years old," says Sarantos. "It’s an exciting but also slightly depressing time and the song is about a man wondering what he has accomplished thus far in his life. It is somewhat sad and the basic premise is that this is not the life he envisioned and he feels like he has not accomplished what he wanted to by this point in his life. He is just not where he wants to be! Of course, the song can also be interpreted (on purpose) because of the charity chosen, as a song about someone struggling with a diagnosis & treatment of cancer. Cancer is also not where anyone wants to be."
Sarantos strives to inspire people with his songs and lyrics. Music is always on his mind and Sarantos has written over 2,000 songs.
A new song will be released every four to six weeks to tease his fans. The CD will be released in early 2014. Sarantos has always been inclined to help people in need and is proud to launch this CD as a way to donate a significant portion of proceeds to charity, hopefully inspiring other artists to do the same. The 11 charities chosen for each album song include American Lung Association, Make-a-wish Foundation, American Heart Association, St Jude's, Hellenic Academy, ASERF, American Red Cross, Children's Hospital of Chicago, Chicago Medical School, Thanioton Society & the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
Sarantos' unique sound has been best described by industry insiders as "an emotionally powerful vocal style masterfully united with music that is a fusion of classic 80s rock blended with modern soft rock and pop music."
Sarantos will offer a wide variety of music including soft rock, pop, country, dance along with some international flavor. Sarantos has been writing lyrics since 4th grade and is passionate about the words he puts to the music. Music was always in his blood. Music was always a passion and much more than a hobby.
